  • Hi john9,  sorry to hear of your discomfort but glad you found us.  I was diagnosed with a 51 degree lumbar curve at age 58 that wasn't there 3 years prior.  So needless to say it was moving fast.  I elected to have fusion surgery (10 levels T9 - S1) due to the rapid progression of the curve and my post menopausal age.  Those old bones aren't going to get any harder.  Anyway, my question to you is what type of dr. have you seen?  Spinal orthopedic surgeon?  Neurologist?  Chiro?  General physician?

  • Hey urbmshr, I’ve seen 2 orthopedic surgeons(one recently), my primary doc (a long time ago) and a dentist. No neurologist. 

  • You said you are considering spinal fusion. Is that what has been recommended to you? At least by the ortho and not the dentist.
  • I used to have that, my eyes used to be sore all the time as well and this caused me to have heavy blinking. I thought it was a separate issue for years and went to eye hospitals - but they could find nothing wrong.

    When I got the neck fixed - it was all tight due to the scoliosis - the blinking went.

    Until you get the scoliosis and the neck fixed, when you have the facial pain, massage the back of the neck, looking to release tight knots - even if the pain is in the face - I found that helped a bit.

     I got my scoliosis and neck fixed with the ASMI machine
